  • 1 kg (ish) green tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 800 g chopped apples (around 1 kg before coring & chopping)
  • 4 cloves garlic , finely chopped
  • 1 large onion , finely chopped
  • 200 g brown sugar
  • 200 ml malt vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 3 chillies finely chopped
  • 1 inch piece ginger , peeled & finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon salt


  • Make sure everything is chopped
  • Put all ingredients in a heavy saucepan & simmer for around 2 hours, until it looks like a 'chutney' - use a potato masher to break up ingredients a bit if necessary.
  • Sterilize jars & spoon in & seal.
  • Leave for at least 3 weeks for the flavour to develop/


To sterilize jars, either put them through the dishwasher and use hot, or wash with water & pop on a low heat in the oven, which evaporates the water whilst the heat sterilizes the jar.
As I don't have a dishwasher, I boil the lids, and use metal tongs to pull them out & position them on the jars.
This makes around 3 x 500 ml jars.
